Kelli has decades of experience in both education and the fiber arts. With multiple degrees in the science of learning, she has applied her meticulous nature to teaching fiber arts. Kelli has taught classes around the country in subjects ranging from spinning and knitting to Mediterranean knotted lace and pattern design. She can be found teaching nearly every year at the International Organization of Lace, inc. (IOLI) convention, as well as specialty lace conventions and workshops. Kelli came to the fiber arts a little later in life, really picking up crocheting in college, but she grew up surrounded by the fiber and livestock community. Kelli was a 4-H kid, with more than 10 years of sheep experience as well as a passion for rabbits that has continued into adulthood. Kelli regularly shows and judges Dutch rabbit competitions (where she is known not only for her subject matter expertise but also her delectable baked goods). In addition to teaching, Kelli is a passionate designer. She has multiple pattern books and instructional booklets in print including Froth and Foam, Do You Know Your Picots, Hoppy Feet, and Lace Knitting Beyond the Basics. Some of her favorite fiber activities include knitting, crochet, tatting, weaving, spinning, dying, and experimenting with new and exciting applications for some of her creations. Kelli lives in the Midwest with her husband, daughter, at least a handful of chickens and ducks, and a thriving Dutch rabbit community. When she's not teaching or judging rabbit shows, Kelli can be found in the kitchen preserving the bounty of her garden and baking up a storm!
